Hard to Take Initially
But that is no fault of the recordist. It's a mighty fine AUD. What one hears is the GD's sound techs taking quite a while to dial the Dead in. The first set has an overall lack of vocals. 'Tis a shame, no doubt, but the instruments do shine and you can take sustenance from that alone.
However, when the sound gets too driven, the limiters kick in and one can sense a drop. This occurs quite a bit. It could annoy the audiophile.
Typical of pre-87 Grateful Dead, when the band finally learned how to keep in tune due to digital electronics, this show gets better as you go. The sound gets adjusted and your ears adjust.
An excellent show and for last song>encore they pull out their current FM hit: their single on Arista Records: Alabama Getaway.
What does it spell out? I finally like this song! And before I can think of another syllable the band morphs into OMSN to close it out.
And thus I am fully closed.
